Green Machine Smoothie

I have been on somewhat of a smoothie kick lately.  It is a super fast and easy way to replenish your muscles after a hard workout or just to have as a yummy treat.

Post-workout meals should consist of protein & carbs.  It is best if these are consumed 30-60 minutes after your workout to maximize the benefit.  The best types of protein are those that are easily digested like protein powder, even more reason to grab that smoothie after you hit the gym.

Today I played around with my smoothie.  There are lots of “Green Machine” smoothies out there so I just combined some of my favorite ingredients to make it my own.  The best thing about smoothies are you really cannot mess them up. If you don’t like the taste just add a little more of something you do like.

Green Machine Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup or large handful of fresh kale
  • 1/2 cup peeled cucumber
  • 1/3 cup or handful of cashew nuts
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/3 cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk
